Artisans in Guatemala handcraft this colorful, eco-friendly clutch from genuine leather and upcycled Mayan Huipil – the beautiful traditional blouses worn by women in Guatemala to signify which village they call home. Each bag is one of a kind, as the front features Huipil colors and a geometric pattern that is unique to each woman’s village.

Lined with 100% cotton, this Huipil Envelope Clutch with an interior zipper pocket is ideally sized to carry your everyday essentials. Customize your adjustable removable strap to enjoy stylish comfort and keep your most essential must-haves conveniently secure in the back exterior pocket with zipper closure. The Huipil Envelope Clutch also includes a removable wristlet strap, creating multiple ways to style it! Every purchase provides safe jobs with fair wages for women in areas of extreme poverty in Guatemala.

If geometric is not your style-preference, check out the sister Huipil Envelope Clutch - Floral for a different pattern!

Every clutch has variations as a part of the Artisan-made charm.

Meet the Artisan

Clara's Story of Hope "Here in Guatemala it is sometimes difficult for women to get jobs because they have children which employers find burdensome. And so, for this reason, women often struggle to secure employment. Sometimes these women will come to us and ask for jobs when there is work available. But sometimes, the workload is low, and we would like to help them by giving them jobs, but we cannot when production is low. I’d like to thank everyone who buys our products, and may God bless you because you are a big help to us – Those who sell and those who buy. It really helps us a lot because if they buy products then we are able to help other people."

The Impact of Your Purchase

In Guatemala, gender discrimination and a lack of opportunities prevent many women in areas of extreme poverty from receiving an education or earning a living wage. But these women are utilizing their traditional skills to create beautiful products that reflect their culture and empower them to provide for their families at home. As Artisans and business owners, women in rural villages are now able to feed, clothe, and pay for their children to go to school - opening doors to a brighter future for the next generation in Guatemala! Purchase this clutch and empower a woman in Guatemala!
